Corel Draw (styled CorelDRAW) is a vector graphics editor developed and marketed by Corel Corporation. It is also the name of Corel’s Graphics Suite, which bundles Corel Draw with bitmap-image editor Corel Photo-Paint as well as other graphics-related programs. The latest version is marketed as Graphics Suite 2017 (equivalent to version 19), and was released in April 2017. CorelDraw is designed to edit two-dimensional images such as logos and posters.
Corel DRAW is a professional image creation and editing program. What differs between CorelDRAW is a vector program allowing for smoother illustrations and fonts when compared to other paint programs.
The software is a robust graphics suite, providing many features for users to edit graphics. These features include contrast adjustment, color balancing, adding special effects like borders to images, and it is capable of working with multiple layers and multiple pages.
CorelDraw was originally released in January of 1989, running on the Windows 2.x operating system. Today, the software is still used by many people, with the latest version, X8, being released on March 15, 2016. CorelDRAW is primarily designed for the Windows operating system. There were several releases for macOS and macOS X, but poor sales resulted in the discontinuation of those versions. There was also a port to Linux in 2000, requiring a modified version of Wine to run the software.
